Take a Tour of the Award-Winning Fitzroy

November 9, 2022In News6 Minutes

One of Deanfield’s most popular home designs is the four-bedroom detached Fitzroy, an impressive character home with a garage included. Boasting plenty of kerb appeal including a striking elongated apex roof, the Fitzroy has just received an award in the Best Family Homes category at the 2022 Evening Standard New Homes Awards.

Join us for a room-by-room tour to find out what made the Fitzroy stand out to the judges…

Walking through the Fitzroy’s stylish brick porchway leads you into a bright, L-shaped hallway. There is plenty of space for boutique hallway furniture, whether that’s a console table, shoe & coat unit or statement lighting. On the left and right of the entrance are two versatile rooms; a chic office that could also be a library or craft room, and a large family room which would make a cosy home cinema, children’s playroom, teenage hideaway or separate formal dining room.

Towards the rear of the ground floor, you’ll find two superb entertaining spaces, both with French doors opening onto a patio and rear garden. The kitchen/dining room, complete with Bosch integrated appliances, has ample space for a six-seater dining table, making it the perfect spot to enjoy home-cooked family meals or a cheeky takeaway!

Alongside this is a substantial living room which has a built-in fireplace suitable for a log-burner for immediate added character. A separate utility room takes care of the laundry, with a door leading to outside, ideal for containing muddy feet or paws! The ground floor is completed with a stylish cloakroom and a store cupboard.

Upstairs, the Fitzroy’s spacious landing leads to four double bedrooms and an elegant family bathroom including a white Laufen suite and chrome Hansgrohe fittings. The principal and second bedrooms both benefit from a stylish en-suite and Hammonds fitted wardrobes, ensuring a relaxing retreat for parents and guests alike. Bedrooms 3 and 4 provide space for teenagers or a growing family.

With a landscaped front garden, electric vehicle charging point, security lights, energy efficient underfloor heating to the ground floor and many other superior finishes, it’s easy to see why the Fitzroy has been recognised as the perfect family home.

Our top interior tips for creating your own Fitzroy-style scheme in your own home:


  1. Get creative with the room you have – Feeling inspired by the Fitzroy’s downstairs suave office? A spare room can have endless possibilities, all it takes is a little imagination and some space-savvy design choices. Whatever your plans, make use of free corners and alcoves, or select furniture that can be used for a variety of purposes so you can stay focused, work efficiently and comfortably from your own home.
  2. Self-expression – It’s important to make your home feel like your own – a place you can escape to and truly feel relaxed in. This is where you can add pops of your personality through your chosen theme, especially when it comes to the bedrooms, to give everyone their own identity-infused space. The Fitzroy bedrooms are a perfect example with the themes of music and mermaid intertwined in the children’s bedrooms.
  3. Textures and tones – The Fitzroy boasts a calming neutral scheme from its warmer accent colours shown through the light fixtures and accessory pieces paired against light-coloured furniture pieces making for a tranquil, homely feel. The secret to creating a warm home is layering the tones and textures through accessories, furniture, and finishes. Whether you’re looking for bold colours or a more neutral feel, look to add contrast through the use of wood, stone and different fabrics.
  4. It’s all in the details – The Fitzroy is filled with interesting art pieces and statues adding a unique touch to the home. Don’t be afraid to add some statement furniture and accessory pieces to really bring together those finishing touches. With a signature mirror, striking piece of artwork or a beautiful rug, these are the pieces that will make your house a home.
  5. Outdoor impact – The Fitzroy’s cosy corner under the pergola is the perfect space to relax and escape. Create your own and add that personal touch with an open-air cinema or outdoor dining area, perfect for entertaining on warm summers night.
